Most companies are diligent in taking care of their workers and providing a safe and productive working environment. OSHA has guidelines and protocols in place to assist workers in maintaining that environment on a day to day basis. When something happens that makes the environment unsafe, you need to report the situation to management and get the issue resolved.
Unsafe Working Conditions
If you are asked by your employer to do something that is against OSHA guidelines, you increase your risk of injury, as well as the risk of injury to others. If your company refuses to rectify the situation and correct the problem, going to OSHA is your next step.
When unsafe work conditions persist, it's up to you to take the necessary precautions to protect yourself. Always make sure you have the right personal protection equipment on hand and follow the appropriate protocols at all times. If you feel something is unsafe, stop what you're doing and ask for assistance.
